U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 442 F.2d 928 (5th Cir. 1971) March 30, 1971

Howard Moore, Jr., Peter E. Rindskopf, Atlanta, Ga., Jack Greenberg, Michael Meltsner, New York City, for appellants.

Lloyd Sutter, Atlanta, Ga., W. K. Campbell, Campbell & Campbell, Covington, Ga., Gambrell, Russell, Moye & Killorin, Atlanta, Ga., for appellees.

Before GEWIN, COLEMAN and AINSWORTH, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


In this case against certain city officials of Covington, Georgia, appellants attack an ordinance of the city regulating parades, demonstrations, assemblies and picketing, under which they were arrested, and sought a temporary and preliminary injunction. After a hearing the Court denied appellants' motion for a temporary and preliminary injunction; the record before us does not indicate that the court dismissed the complaint.

We affirm the judgment of the district court denying injunctive relief and remand the case with direction to dismiss the complaint. Younger v. Harris, 401 U.S. 37, 91 S. Ct. 746, 27 L. Ed. 2d 669 (1971); Boyle v. Landry, 401 U.S. 77, 91 S. Ct. 758, 27 L. Ed. 2d 696 (1971); Samuels v. Mackell, 401 U.S. 66, 91 S. Ct. 764, 27 L. Ed. 2d 688 (1971); Dyson v. Stein, 401 U.S. 200, 91 S.
